According to Mobile Magazine, one of Rhys Jones’s startups, Sanoodi has closed an initial seed funding round of £350,000 from a number of private investors in the UK, the US and Switzerland. It seems Sanoodi will use the initial investment to launch its mobile phone GPS platform and to expand its business development activities. Here is an extract from the post:
?Our focus is enabling users to share their total experiences of their active lifestyles with others who share these same interests, anywhere in the world”, said Sanoodi, CTO Rhys Jones. The company has also appointed Rhys Davies to the Board as Chairman. Davies is an experienced media investor and serves as a Non-executive Director of two publicly-traded media companies, Tinopolis PLC and The Local Radio Company PLC. He says: ?As an ambitious company, this investment will enable us to extend our offering to take advantage of the arrival of GPS technology in a growing number of mobile phones and other devices, and to accelerate our business development activities in new markets.?
